Burnout Expert Kelly Swingler to Speak at WTM London

World-renowned executive coach, burnout expert, inspirational speaker and author, Kelly Swingler, will be sharing her experience on how to have a successful career without jeopardising wellbeing at this year’s World Travel Market London, 7th-9th November 2022 at ExCel.

Kelly, who is author of the acclaimed book, Mind The Gap: A Story of Burnout, Breakthrough and Beyond, will share her advice and insight about helping people achieve and lead a core-led life in a must-attend session organised by the Association of Women Travel Executives.

In 2013, after a 15-year leadership career, Kelly was burnt out, exhausted and missing out on life with her family. She realised that the way we are all working, isn’t working.

Since then, she has helped women from all over the world to succeed without giving up their career or jeopardising their wellbeing often appearing on TV and radio.

Kelly says“How we are taught to define success is outdated and it doesn’t have to be this way.”

Anyone is at risk of burnout, but women in particular struggle with the difficulties of balancing work and caring responsibilities and are still doing far more unpaid work than men each week.

In a 2022 study called The Exhaustion Gap, which looked at the effects of Covid-19, two-thirds of women said they felt burnt out.

The study also highlighted the fact that women have been set back in terms of their careers over the past two years, with 66% not receiving any sort of pay rise since the start of the pandemic.

Two-thirds (64%) of women said they wished they had more time for themselves, while 53% want more time to invest in themselves, and their interests and hobbies.

What’s more, twice as many women as men reported feeling more isolated since the pandemic.  It is well documented that women bore most of the home-schooling responsibilities during the recent global pandemic, on top of juggling their regular jobs whilst working from home as well as the increased cooking and cleaning duties that came as part of repeated lockdowns.

WTM Exhibition Director Juliette Losardo said:

“A core theme of World Travel Market 2022 is how we can rebuild business - with difference - to deliver a new future for the travel sector. After a challenging couple of years, work-life balance is of paramount importance to many. We’re delighted to have an expert of Kelly’s calibre tackling issues surrounding burnout and inclusion. We hope this inspiring session allows a time for reflection and a catalyst for real change’’

Lindsay Garvey Jones, Chair of the AWTE says:

“I am delighted that Kelly has agreed to join us at World Travel Market.  Kelly is a real inspiration, and clearly understands all about burnout and how to address the work-life balance that we all struggle with in a 24/7 travel industry. We are excited to hear what advice she has for us all.”

Kelly Swingler will be presenting on the Future Stage at World Travel Market London on Tuesday 9th November 2022 at 13:45 – 14:45. Register here

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
